|Seven Years of Tribulation - The Tribulation (BDR-004) - Seven Years of Tribulation|
Bardesanes Records is proud to finally release "The Tribulation," now long overdue. In the spirit of other over-ambitious, over-worked pieces of art this release took only a few days to record and over a year to mix. The instrumentation is sparse, mistakes were left in, and the first working take of anything was used and left alone. If you take away anything from this or other releases by Bardesanes Records, hopefully it is how much can be accomplished with so little.

|Illusion of Art - Phylum [BDR-001] - Illusion of Art|
Recorded in 2004, Illusion of Art's first album "Phylum" was originally self-released on CD-R in 25 copies. This recording is very rough. It was recorded with terrible equipment by plugging a four track into the back of the computer as a mixer and recorded completely with freeware. The vocals are sung in an asthmatic wheeze over distorted guitars, harpsichords, kotos, home organ percussion, Nintendos, hip-hop beats, and Mellotrons among others...
